Description

The F-11 was designed completely around the ship's engine and powerplant, which takes up a majority of the space in this compact and sleek design. Built for speed and maneuverability to the exclusion of attack and defence, its sole purpose is to penetrate enemy space and report back what it finds, using speed and maneuverability to avoid trouble that it has no way of dealing with.

As light as it could be made, with every sacrifice made to save on weight, even a high speed ram from one of these flimsy craft would do little damage. This the F-11 is built for one tactic; running away. Something it does extremely well. With such high speed and maneuverability, inertial compensators and dampeners protect the pilot, as does the agrinium shielding between the pilot's couch and the engine just behind.

Coated in stealthy reflec, the F-11 is intended to be a hard to detect fast moving blip on an enemy radar, soon forgotten as its intel allows more hard hitting friendly forces to come in and deal a savage blow to the enemy.

HIMS allows the fighter to enter interdicted space or leave it at will

 

HIMS is not typically found on small craft like starfighters because of its relatively large size. I'd like to see a pretty significant weakness added to this or be one rating lower overall than normal to account for this. 

 

I should also point out that HIMS does not allow ships to escape from interdicted space: it only allows increased penetration of existing interdiction fields as the ship reverts out of hyperspace.

 

Coated in stealthy reflec, the F-11 is intended to be a hard to detect fast moving blip on an enemy radar, soon forgotten as its intel allows more hard hitting friendly forces to come in and deal a savage blow to the enemy.

 

We probably need to clarify a bit more about this ship's stealth properties. Ifthis is going to be really hard to detect, we'regoing to have to increase production to account for that. At minor production, the amount of stealth that this ship would have would be pretty limited, mostly to longer distances.

 

Overall, this ship is currently two ratings too high just to get normal balance (not including the HIMS balancing, if you take that route).

Gir Quee No worries, decreased production to Limited and dropped Maneuverability one rating.

Ratings adjustment looks good.

 

Affiliation: Mandalorian Empire Production: Limited

 

Ifyou'll narrow down the affiliation to meet the new production of "limited" please per the template.  

 

HIMS allows the fighter to enter interdicted space or leave it at will

 

HIMS does not enable ships to jump out of interdiction fields. If you'll remove "or leave it at will" from this section please.

 

 

I don't follow the balancing concept for the HIMS right now. Can you elaborate on that for me please?

Gir Quee No worries, i reread your last post. I've removed the incorrect HIMS reference and further dropped a rating.
